Return to: Programs of Study

College of Arts and Sciences

The major concentration in physics leading to a Bachelor of Science degree consists of 18–19 upper-division hours of physics and 3 hours of upper division courses in mathematics. The Physics program offers two major tracks designed to emphasize study in either Medical Physics or Traditional Physics. The medical physics track is recommended for those students intending to pursue graduate studies in  medicine or healthcare fields, medical physics, or biomechanics/kinesiology. The traditional physics track is recommended for those students considering graduate studies in research or applied physics. A grade of C or better is required in each upper-division course counted toward fulfillment of the major requirements. (A grade of C- will not satisfy this requirement.)

Total Hours for Traditional Physics Major:

Physics—8 credit hours prerequisite and 18 credit hours upper division


Math—11 credit hours lower division and 3 credit hours upper division
